rush did/does have a tendency to turn the decibels up at their shows :) love Hemispheres, but always felt that Permanent Waves was their true highpoint.

but damn, i havent listened to Hemispheres in sooooo long - you have now induced me to pull that out and give it another listen (thanks for that)

Speaking of Hockey...

I wonder if you've ever heard the band "The Pursuit of Happiness"? They were produced by Todd Rundgren. Power Pop at its best. Canadian band, as was Rush.

They did a great song titled "Gretsky Rocks."

Their entire repertoire is filled with gems. They were both funny, and catchy.

Their lyrics, and quite a few may remember "I'm and Adult Now," are filled with anxiety, sexuality, and making fun of cliches.

They certainly fulfill my need for irreverence.

Exit Stage Left was my favorite album. I must have listened to that hundreds of times. I think Jacob's Ladder was on Permanent Waves, wasn't it? I've seen Rush a few times and unfortunately they played a lot of new songs and when they played the old songs they always played a medley, combing a few short portions together. So we got the full versions of all the new crap and they cut to pieces all of the good ole songs.

jacob's ladder is definitely one of their best songs. i also did not like the 'medley approach' which sometimes surfaced. i dont recall seeing the full version live after their Moving pictures tour. Natural Science would be pulled out every once in awhile though, which was always a treat.
